Bougainvillea ‘Scarlet O’Hara’ is a popular and well-known cultivar of Bougainvillea.

Appearance: Bougainvillea ‘Scarlet O’Hara’ is celebrated for its vibrant and intense scarlet-red bracts that surround its small, inconspicuous flowers. The bracts are the main attraction and provide the plant with its striking and eye-catching appearance.

Growth habit: ‘Scarlet O’Hara’ is a vigorous and fast-growing vine or shrub that can quickly cover walls, fences, trellises, and other support structures. It can reach a height of 4.5 to 9m and spread even wider under favourable conditions.

Sun and climate requirements: Like most Bougainvillea varieties, ‘Scarlet O’Hara’ thrives in full sun and prefers warm, tropical or subtropical climates. It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from freezing temperatures.

Watering and soil: Once established, ‘Scarlet O’Hara’ is relatively drought-tolerant, but regular watering is required during dry periods, especially in hot weather. It prefers well-draining soil and can struggle in waterlogged or poorly draining soils.

Pruning: Regular pruning is essential to maintain the shape of the plant and encourage continuous blooming. Bougainvilleas bloom on new growth, so pruning after the flowering cycle can help promote more blooms.

Uses: Bougainvillea ‘Scarlet O’Hara’ is a popular choice for adding a burst of scarlet-red color to gardens, landscapes, and outdoor spaces. Its vivid hues make it an excellent focal point or accent plant in any setting.
